Ik had alleen naar de jaarrekening en de verklaring gekeken, maar vond dit terug in het jaarverslag over de dambreuk. Als het al gedeeld is, sorry dat ik het nogmaals doe. Er stond niets in de verklaring omdat er ook niets is. Waarvan akte.
BRUMADINHO DAM COLLAPSE IN BRAZIL
On 25 January 2019, the Brumadinho dam in Brazil collapsed, leading to the loss of many lives, including four of our colleagues. Since then, Fugro has closely monitored the facts becoming available to the company through various investigations undertaken by or on behalf of, among others, the Brazilian state and federal public prosecutor’s office. In particular, Fugro has been assessing on an ongoing basis whether any of these investigations could lead to further adverse consequences for Fugro and its stakeholders.
Early on, Fugro concluded that the company is not at fault for the collapse of the Brumadinho dam and did not record any provision in relation to the occurrence. The company’s position has not changed since. While relatively quickly it became clear that a number of companies and individuals would likely be formally prosecuted in relation to the incident, which has happened since, Fugro has not been prosecuted or faced any legal actions in relation to the collapse of the dam.
On 19 December 2022, the share price fell by 23% following a broadcast by the Dutch TV programme Pointer on 18 December 2022. Fugro regrets the share price reaction to the Pointer broadcast and reiterates that the assessment of the position by Fugro has not changed. We would like to add that the TV programme itself stated that the Brazilian public prosecutor had commented that Fugro was not the subject of any criminal prosecution in the matter and that other parties were being held liable for the incident.
We continue to follow developments closely, and will update the market where appropriate.
